Point of View

The “Point of View” series presents a range of perspectives from the CCES network. This month Andy Johnson* writes about his time in Laos PDR.

Last year I worked in Laos on three different occasions, in three different locations and in three different seasons. Whilst the weather and the locations varied, the people remained a positive and constant with their wonderful friendliness and hospitality. Wedding invitations, playing the popular Lao game, Petanque (an addictive and social game not unlike the Italian game of Bocce), and socialising with our Lao work colleagues made Lao a favoured destination. Read More

Offshore Oil and Gas Installations Security

Oil and natural gas, which today accounts for over 60% of the worlds energy supply, are often produced by offshore platforms. One third of all oil and gas comes from the offshore sector. However offshore oil and gas installations are generally considered intrinsically vulnerable to deliberate attacks. Dr Mikhail Kashubsky, Senior Lecturer at CCES and Head of INCU Secretariat, has written a new book on the subject of Offshore Oil and Gas Installation Security: An International Perspective. This is an indispensable reference work for oil and gas professionals, company security officers, policy makers, maritime lawyers and academics worldwide. Read More
